Scenic Eclipse II officially arrived in Australia, making a stunning entrance into Sydney Harbour this morning (19 April 2024), ahead of her first-ever exploration of Australian waters. The ship will then embark on a two-year series of luxurious voyages in the Oceania region, highlighting a new era in ultra-luxury cruising.

The Sydney Harbour debut of Scenic Eclipse II was a special moment for the Australian-founded Scenic Group, with the newest addition to the company’s ultra-luxury Discovery Yacht fleet making its first stop in the port of Newcastle on 22 April, the city where Scenic was founded 38 years ago.

Following its showcase in Sydney, Scenic Eclipse II will embark on its inaugural journey exploring the Australian waters, the first of a series of discovery voyages from 2024 to early 2026. From the coastline of Queensland with the Great Barrier Reef and its stunning islands to the Northern Territory and Kimberley region, then onto the coast of Western Australia in 2025. Those keen to explore further afield can enjoy the wonders of the South Pacific, South East Asia, Japan and South Korea, New Zealand, remote East Antarctica and the Ross Sea region.

Scenic Group Chairman and Founder, Glen Moroney, said:“As an Australian-founded company, we are proud to set the global benchmark for ultra-luxury yacht cruising. Scenic Eclipse II represents our commitment to continuous innovation and creating exceptional life-changing experiences. The Scenic Group team greatly appreciates the support of our travel partners and our valued guests from around the world. We look forward to welcoming Scenic Eclipse II in Newcastle, many ports along the East Coast and Top End of Australia, then continuing our journey across the Oceania region for this two-year season.”

With 114 luxurious suites, 10 unique, all-inclusive dining experiences, and an almost one-to-one crew-to-guest ratio, the exceptional service provided on board Scenic Eclipse II is in a class of its own. Guests can also enjoy unrivalled exploration as the Discovery Yacht boasts two on-board helicopters, and the next-generation electric submersible, Scenic Neptune II – which can transport up to eight guests and dives up to 200 metres below the surface. 

Scenic Ocean voyages are truly all-inclusive, meaning guests can leave their wallet in a safe place and relax, knowing everything is taken care of. Up to 10 dining experiences, premium branded beverages and immersive Scenic Discovery and Freechoice excursions, all flights, transfers and tipping are all included.
